Simon is obsessed with No. 13
SIMON Cowell has revealed that he is obsessed with the number 13.
The pop mogul admitted that he even counts his steps to avoid his unlucky number.
Cowell said: "Everything with me is about numbers, so I'm always counting numbers in my head – even if I walk up the stairs I'm counting how many steps and, if it's 13, I make sure it's not going to be 13.
"It's kind of a sign of madness actually."
Cowell also revealed that he had been stalked by fans at his home in Los Angeles, with one asking whether she could move into his guesthouse and live "like a dog in a kennel".
He recalled: "I said, 'Why would you want to do that?', and she said, 'Because I know that you love dogs'. "Anyway, I said no."
